Wondering whether you need a fire permit for your brazier, charcoal bbq or to burn rubbish?

Fire Emergency New Zealand determines fire seasons and issues fire permits - not your local council.

If you want to know what sort of fire requires a permit go to www.checkitsalright.nz to check on the fire season status and for fire permit applications.

You can enter the address you are considering lighting a fire and the type of fire by clicking into a map and zooming in on your location - as shown in the photo for the Waihi area.

A drop down menu will also ask you what type of fire you intend to light and let you know whether you will need a permit or not.

You will also be able to apply for a permit if you need one.
